Abstract

The document aims to address the prevalent issue of individuals, particularly women, facing various unwanted problems and the reluctance to seek help from strangers or emergency helplines. The team’s proposed solution involves the creation of a platform that enables individuals to seek help without hesitation and receive assistance from nearby volunteers, thereby fostering a sense of community and support. The project’s problem statement emphasizes the serious challenges faced by women, including harassment, teasing, and safety concerns, and highlights the need for a reliable platform to seek help in such situations. The team’s motto revolves around creating awareness and promoting mutual assistance among people. The proposed solution is designed to be fast and effective, with the introduction of a concept where individuals can act as both volunteers and help-seekers, thereby fostering a culture of reciprocity and support. The team’s solution involves the development of an Android application that leverages the Google Maps API to track the location of individuals. The application incorporates Aadhar verification to ensure the registration of genuine users, a progress bar to track ”HERO Points” earned by helping others, and future features such as voice control and subscription-based revenue generation. The technical feasibility of the application is emphasized, along with its potential societal impact, including increased trust, enhanced safety for women, and the potential to challenge negative social norms. The team envisions the application as a means to revive faith, humanity, and respect among people, with the ultimate goal of creating awareness and happiness on a global scale. The document also includes a detailed flowchart depicting the user journey within the application, encompassing the splash screen, login and registration processes, OTP verification, maps and navigation features, leaderboard, profile management, emergency contacts, and rewards. In summary, the project aims to address the societal issue of individuals hesitating to seek help and aims to create a supportive community where individuals can assist each other without hesitation, thereby fostering a sense of pride and positivity.
